Human Cloning?

Scientists have just cloned the first monkeys using the same technique devised to clone Dolly the sheep. Scientists appear to be excited that the discovery is a breakthrough for the study of human diseases including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. It is reportedly the first time this technique has been used to clone any close relative of a human.

What’s your take? Do you think medical advances outweigh the biological, ethical and social considerations of human cloning?

Human cloning should be banned.Medical advances do not justify playing God

I believe we can benefit from medical advances if it is regulated.(which it won't) I would rather these tests be in the open than in someones backroom laboratory.

California decided that reproduction should be a state not a federal matter, and legalized cloning. That decision was endorsed by the Supreme Court, leading to a patchwork of permission throughout the republic.

Considering that identical twins are natural clones, we can regard reproductive cloning as the technological version of the process. When it comes to infertile couples, should not they be granted the opportunity to produce clones of themselves?

One big drawback to cloning humans is its ability to divide people, where clones who are not treated as human beings can lead to social unrest and divide.

By cloning humans, it will be possible for potential parents to actually choose particular traits for their children. This means that sex, eye color and other characteristics can be selected and not left up to chance.

No

To TJ,do you think it is a good thing to design a baby? Is it OK to play GOD? I say NO!

I think medical advances outweigh the risks of abuse.
